Juneteenth is celebrated as the day Black slaves were freed from their enslavers. Since that time this nation has made many advances but yet to fully recompense for the generational harm caused by slavery and laws that have led to wealth and economic gaps. To discuss these discrepancies and to seek remedy is not being divisive. It shows a sign of maturity that would lead to a stronger America. A nation that recognizes and make amends for its sins. I believe as a nation, we can take that step and heal wounds yet to be mended.

Kirsten Gillibrand

Despite the progress we’ve made on civil rights, the hard truth is that institutional racism persists in our economy, education, health care, housing, and criminal justice system. Kirsten believes that everyone must be part of the struggle for justice and has led on policies that would help combat systemic inequality and bias, lift up communities of color, and expand opportunity for everyone. She wrote and introduced a bill to establish postal banking, which would let people without checking accounts—disproportionately people of color—open accounts and take out small loans at their local post office. She has also led efforts to fight injustices and close disparities in law enforcement, access to clean air and water, health care, maternal mortality, and education.

Who you are or who you love should never keep you from pursuing the American dream. It’s that simple. We must ensure that all LGBTQ+ Americans can receive a high quality education, work toward their dream job, access affordable healthcare, start a family, and serve in the military without discrimination.

Amy Klobuchar

We must beat back decades of systemic racism and inequality. Amy believes this begins with early-childcare and fixing our education system, addressing racism in health care such as disparities in maternal and infant mortality rates, ending housing discrimination so that everyone can afford to rent an apartment and own a home in a good neighborhood for their kids, and tackling disparities in wages and in retirement savings.
